Hackerspaces, Fab Labs, Makerspaces are places where ideas become projects. Discover how to prepare young people to the challenges of a digital world by tackling their curiosity and creativity in the context of ICT and exchange experiences with makers.

General Description

Makerspaces in digital youth work

A hands-on training course for youth workers, who want to work with youngsters in makerspaces and create a network in the field of digital youth work and creative e-skills.

Hackerspaces, Fab Labs, Makerspaces – these are the places where ideas become projects and where information technologies are just a tool to achieve something bigger. What that might be is completely up to you. And to the youngsters you’re working with, of course!

With new technologies becoming more and more important in our everyday lives, as well as in our professional careers, it is crucial to include them in youth work activities and make sure that the next generation lives up to be competent and enthusiastic ICT creators instead of mere users.

This training course will be focused on an active exchange between makers to discover how to prepare young people to the challenges of a digital world by tackling their curiosity and creativity in the context of ICT.

Makerspaces offer a non-formal learning experience in fields such as robotics, 3D printing, programming, reverse engineering, design, electronics and many more. They encourage youngsters to overcome their fear of contact, discover the endless possibilities of tinkering, try out new things, make mistakes, learn from them and become confident creators themselves.

At the same time, makerspaces become social hubs for interaction and personal development – a place where youth work can happen in the most creative way!

This training is for you if you are:

  • Working with young people in a non-formal environment
  • Enthusiastic about the possibilities of new technologies and digital tinkering
  • Working with youngsters in a makerspace or similar institution or planning to set up one
  • Willing to share your knowledge and exchange best practices
  • Supported by your organization to become part of an international network of “maker-enthusiastic” youth workers

The central hub of this training will be “Base1” – the Makerspace run by the National Youth Service in Luxembourg.

During 4 full days of training, we will also take you to some other creative spots in Luxembourg, to make sure your brain gets enough food for thought and inspiration, so that, at the end of this course, we will be able to lay the foundation of a network of creative digital youth work.

Training Course: Youth work – a path to peaceful societies

Dates: 13-21 May 2019

Venue: Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 27th April 2019

The need of the project comes from the existing growing tension and violence among smaller ethnic/migrant groups and the increasing tensions within many EU countries in regard to nationalism and racism.

General Description

The training course “Youth work – a path to peaceful societies” will be held in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria from 13.05.2019 – 21.05.2019. It will involve 30 youth workers and leaders from the UK, Italy, Bulgaria, Spain, Greece, Romania, Turkey, Cyprus, Holland and Republic of North Macedonia.

The need of the project comes from the existing growing tension and violence among smaller ethnic/migrant groups and the increasing tensions within many EU countries in regard to nationalism and racism. After extensive analyses on the situations in all the partner countries and the long-term experience of our partners in the field, together we have developed the concept of the current project proposal.

Chauvinism, racism and discrimination, combined with violence and threatening acts against minorities raises the need to seek effective strategies to address the problems of conflict, radicalization and violence among young people. With the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, the level of violence is increasing among all countries, including the UK.

The project will cover different types of conflicts and in different settings and consequently ways of transforming conflicts by non-violent actions. The training course will foster constructive debate on recent conflicts in Europe and cooperation in the youth field.

This is done by promoting non-violent approaches leading to actions on peace-building. Moreover, young leaders will discuss the significant role of youth participation in grass-root peace-building initiatives. By providing an overall understanding of conflict theories and providing space to analyses concrete conflicts and tensions, participants will increase their competences for solving conflict in a non-violent way.

Therefore, youth workers participating in the training will gain skills in planning and intervening in these situations with transformation approaches, by implementing peace building activities and non-violent actions. All the above stated illustrates the importance of youth work in the areas of peace building, conflict transformation, human rights education and anti-discrimination.

Main objectives of the project:

• To develop a set of knowledge, skills and competences of youth workers in conflict transformation and peace-building;
• To equip youth workers with an understanding of non-violence concepts and human rights education that can be applied to their local communities to prevent conflicts and violent radicalisation among local youths;
• To motivate participants to advocate for non-violent actions on the local, national and international levels, and for them to act as multipliers and ambassadors of peace;
• To encourage cooperation between the organisations for further actions on youth peacebuilding initiatives;
• To promote the European values of intercultural dialogues, peace, anti-discrimination, diversity, respect of human rights, tolerance and solidarity
